"In the oracle world you would have to pay for every virtual host that the guest will potentially land on unless you are using oracle's own partitioning methods, vmware say this isn't the case but I don't see them offering to pay the legal costs to fight it out."

We just laughed at them when they explained this, but they wouldn't budge so we spent less than Oracle would have cost on migrating to an SQL Server utility model! Much nicer / easier to update, maintain and run too. For instance - in SQL Server to create a new database - almost instant - in Oracle it can take forever!
